Hot on the heels of our last update is another one. This time we have added some exciting improvements to the tenant profiles. You’ll now have access to the latest feed items recorded for a tenant and a ledger style transaction history report. When generating your management fees, we’ve improved the workflow. Now you can generate the owner statements, view and verify all the transactions, and pay the owner distribution all on one screen!
Also included in this release are a number of speed enhancements. We’re continually focused on delivering an improved and faster experience, and this release is no exception.
In the wake of the 2008 Financial/Housing Crisis, the real estate industry was dealt a series of direct blows (as could be expected), and indirect effects continue to exacerbate the pummeling; at ground zero the dust has not settled, but what can be deciphered is a re-assignment of equity and the subsequent paradigm shift within the real estate industry. Over a million new or “converted” American renters have expanded the market since the housing meltdown, and demand for “property managers” to facilitate the rental process has provided a much needed outlet for struggling real estate agents, as “income-producing properties” now provide much needed cashflows for property vendors in this stagnant sales market.
This creates an alternative for many companies and individuals who are pressed for cash but wish to hold on to their undervalued properties until prices eventually rise. The cash accumulated from collecting rents can provide the money needed to pay bills and expenses that would otherwise render them bankrupt.
The folks at RentPost predicted this transition from the “era of the agent,” and surmised that the ultimate profitability of the emerging property management industry would be contingent upon technology. We have created a user-friendly yet highly sophisticated, automated “system’s” approach to facilitating the rental process in the 21st Century.
The speed and efficiency of the Internet Age is breathing new life into an industry overdue for a makeover. Our user-interface connects tenants and landlords on a mobile, digital platform where information is more easily collected, organized, stored, and communicated. Accounting functions take this further, providing effortless assimilation of such information so that you and your employees can maximize efficiency, allocating newfound time and energy to the expansion of your company and/or services, rather than tedious number crunching and record keeping. Furthermore, accounting features help property managers (and/or landlords) to reduce the time and money they spend on record keeping and costly accountants by automatically providing up to date balance sheets, cost analysis, and a variety of ledgers, providing managers a constant calculation of their bottom line.

I’ll concede the possibility that balancing a checkbook is an invaluable learning experience…but aren’t those just the little slips of paper you pay your rent with?

It seems tenant farming’s primordial residue has stained modern day renting with a peculiar interpersonal and professional environment, considering landlords stand mightily above ye obsequious tenants. Even more interesting, few seem to recognize the relationship is, well, backwards. Wonder what I’m talkin’ ’bout? Typically, tenants commission other individuals or companies to provide a rental service (housing), yet tenants yield to the demands of the person or company that is paid to serve. In other words, the “servant” out ranks the employer. Usually, contracted service providers submit to the will of the man with the moolah, yet rental relationships have inverted from the professional, capitalist norm, allowing king landlord to act as s/he pleases, regardless of how those actions affect the tenant. Enough hyperbole; what’s the rest of the story, and how can power be balanced?
Traveling through the world of rent, we at RentPost have acquired a deep understanding of the renters market from many different perspectives, including investment, interpersonal, professional, and even historical thanks to The Witt. Through our plight, we have uncovered a commonality, affecting all perspectives – communication. It marks the fine line that divides rent’s interpersonal and professional interaction, and the manner in which it exists (or doesn’t!) truly impacts tenant-landlord dealings from the ground up. No matter how its sliced, communication is the word, so… let’s talk!
